Peter Cotton Trail in Auburn

March 29 - April 1


Here comes Peter Cotton Tail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail….actually hundreds of cute little bunnies will be hidden throughout various parks and trails in Auburn from March 29- April 1 for the Peter Cotton Trail event, which will be held Easter weekend.

Grab your peeps and hop around Auburn in search of these elusive bunnies. Find ten bunnies for your chance to win one of 50+ prizes (valued up to $100!). You’ll have a hippity-hoppity good time participating in this four-day scavenger hunt! This is a safe and FREE event for all ages and all ability levels looking for an opportunity to get outside and get active in an outdoor setting.

Print the Bunny Scorecard (PDF),  if you wish, or bring something on your search to track your bunnies such as a notepad and pen, smartphone or tablet. Note: you do NOT need to email scorecards. Printed scorecards (for tracking purposes only) will also be available, beginning March 25 during normal business hours at:

You will need to find at least ten bunnies. In most cases, you may need to visit two or more parks to complete your scorecard. Each bunny will have a unique number. When you find a bunny, track the corresponding number on your scorecard or tracking device. Printed scorecards are for tracking purposes only. Complete the Online Bunny Scorecard Submission Form (one per participant – adults too!), which will become available on March 29. Winners will be selected at random and announced on or before April 5.

Please don’t take or move the bunnies from their hiding spot, so everyone can enjoy this activity and bunnies remain safe from mowers and maintenance equipment.
